”Power is not trying to dominate others”-Actress, Rita Dominic
By Patricia Uyeh
Award-winning actress, Rita Dominic, in a recent interview, explained what being powerful means to her. Surprisingly, it is not what many of us would have thought. According to her, being powerful is being able to impact other people’s lives positively. She was quoted thus:
“Power is a word that is often used negatively when discussing it in relation to women in our society….Many equate power to being b*tchy or trying to dominate others, but not me….I feel powerful when I am able to affect other people’s lives positively.
”Things like getting jobs for others, helping young actors and filmmakers achieve their dreams, contributing to the success of my own personal projects, and making charitable contributions to those who need it, empowers me on a daily basis. Being inspired and passionate about what I do gives me so much energy – and you can equate that to power.”
